Diane Centoni

I have a passion for creating functional and decorative ceramic and mosaic art. My primary art media are hand thrown and hand built clay, glazes, broken ceramics and art glass. I use handmade ceramic pieces, broken ceramics and left over or reused art glass to create mosaics for the home and garden.

My art is inspired by nature, movement, color, texture and shape; simply, things that catch my eye. I enjoy imagining the potential and beauty in most everything. My practice has evolved as I’ve discovered my passion for recreating things that would otherwise end up in the landfill. My sons’ favorite Christmas tree is a Charlie Brown tree, seemingly broken and unwanted but truly beautifully individual, that we lovingly brought home and put back together. My mosaic art provides the same joy and I love when the joy spreads to others.
